Global financial company expands on Southbank
Cutting the ribbon for new Macquarie Group office space in Riverplace Tower were Anthony Glenn, Head of Jacksonville Office for Macquarie, JAX Chamber Board Chair Darnell Smith, City Council President Anna Brosche, Mayor Lenny Curry, with Marcus Simper, Macquarie Division Director, and Matthew Gummer, Macquarie Americas CFO.

JAXUSA Partnership and JAX Chamber held a ribbon cutting Aug. 14 to celebrate Macquarie Group’s continued growth in the Jacksonville market. Already occupying the fifth floor of Riverplace Towers, the event noted expansion to the fourth floor for Macquarie’s human resources and business services staff.

The company is expanding its shared services operations and adding 50 new jobs in Northeast Florida. In fact, on the day of the celebration, Matthew Gummer, CFO for Macquarie Americas, said the company had brought in 31 new employees that same day.

A $50,000 incentive package from the City and $200,000 from the State of Florida helped the Australian-based company select Jacksonville over a city in India for the expansion, bringing $1.7 million in capital investments to Jacksonville.

Macquarie Group is a global provider of financial, advisory, investment and funds management services, and began its Jacksonville operations in Global Finance Services in the Riverplace Tower building in 2015.
